For some reason, the “Waiting to Exhale” author decided to share these thoughts with her Twitter followers this morning:

terry-mcmillan-mexicans

Needless to say, despite deleting the tweets, Ms. McMillan found herself in the hot seat:

https://twitter.com/darling_bekki/status/349922111730618368

She’s trying, at any rate:

https://twitter.com/MsTerryMcMillan/status/349915135189585920

Hey, some of her best friends are Mexican!

https://twitter.com/MsTerryMcMillan/status/349915330904195072

We believe she’s referring to the satirical 2004 film, “A Day Without a Mexican.”

https://twitter.com/MsTerryMcMillan/status/349920433421811713

Right. She stands for bigotry. Whoops.

Still, she had a handful of defenders:

But most people weren’t buying into her version of events:

Ouch. And what makes this look even worse is that McMillan was among those who slammed alleged racist Paula Deen:

Intellectual consistency is clearly not her strong suit.

McMillan departed with one last request:

Doesn’t seem like her Wednesday is shaping up to be a terribly forgiving one.

  • RblDiver
  • LegalizeShemp

    And the same people “outraged” by those stereotypes are the same people who say, “we need them here to pick our vegetables or lettuce would cost $10 per head”. Most of them also have Hispanic nannies and gardeners tending to their kids and well manicured lawns as well.

    • Jeff McCabe

      Oh? Most of them? Names please.

  • garygramscom

    I have to admit, I really don’t know who she is, but I try to imagine the US without hypocrites and it always ends up the same…. no liberals

    • Noah

      to be fair, it would mean no political parties of any kind either.
      nothing wrong with that, in my opinion.

    • grais

      She seems to be a bit of a tippler.
      Oh, and a bigot, of course.
      Looks as if she might have a little Mexican slave labor, too.

  • TheLiberalHero

    The only Mexicans worth having are those who will vote multiple times for Democrats.

  • Raj Arjan

    People REALLY need to be educated before they start spouting mindless crap about the land we “STOLE FROM MEXICO!”

    Read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Guadalupe_Hidalgo

    Then here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gadsden_purchase

    That’s right! BOUGHT AND PAID FOR!

    Still, McMillan is a twit……

    • Jay Stevens

      Even more simple to say, “the land the original Spanish settlers stole from the (North American) Indians”.

    • Ronin

      I’ve been trying that route for at least two decades. People don’t want to hear it. Grievance studies told them it wasn’t so.

  • PeterP

    When you are quick to accuse others of racism, this is what you get. Shakespeare called it being hoisted by your own petard. Hopefully she won’t be so quick to judge others in the future.

    • tjcuzns

      Nice sentiment; but I would not count on it.

    • vphilly

      Nah, she’s particularly stupid. She’s never learned a thing from the other 3000 times she’s put her foot in her mouth. Why would this be any different?

    • Tommy

      Don’t count on it, liberals are hypocrites and race hustlers.

  • Garrett Gripling

    She’s still waiting to exhale that bong hit.

    • Jeremy

      it will be a while.

  • carla5731

    I didn’t realize that one benefit of cutting my own grass, cleaning my own house and tending to my own garden is that it makes me less racist than Terry McMillan.

    • Kevin Scott

      Same here. I do all my own yard work. But since I’m white, am I still racist, just not a much as Terry McMillan (as you stated)?

  • Kevin Scott

    I LOVE her line “Smart people should know I wasn’t stereotyping.” Typical Liberal response: Ooops I’ve been caught being a hypocrite but it’s YOUR FAULT YOU AREN’T SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT I REALLY MEANT.
    I hope Paula Deen sends her a pound of fried butter to snack on.

    • Mary123s

      zing!

  • mickeyco

    Her back pedaling was almost as bad as the original tweet. We’ve always known she was racist, but beside pulling out every stereotype, she used the old it was taken out of context and refers to a Mexican-American friend. Class act, Terry.

    • MissJames

      Yep ,the old “some of my best friends are _________” There’s no good way she can spin this but she’ll try because she will never say “I’m so sorry “.

      • mickeyco

        Oh, amen. Libs never do.

        • Mary123s

          I’m a lib…trust…for all the times I’ve been wrong I could create a new business…Kentucky Fried Crow 😉

      • mickeyco

        Oh, amen. Libs never do.

      • Jay Stevens

        … because she will never say “I’m so sorry ^ if you were offended “.

        FIFY. :)

      • Mary123s

        why doesn’t she just say it? people need to put their vanity away.

    • grais

      She took her ball and went home in a huff.
      That’s what children do.

      • Mary123s

        zing zing !

    • grais

      She took her ball and went home in a huff.
      That’s what children do.

  • marcellucci

    Ms. McMillan,
    Please replace “Mexicans” with “Negroes” and finish the sentence with similar stereotypes……
    I’ll make the popcorn…..

    • A.B. Hay

      Mexican is a nationality, that word isn’t. Either call them Americans (which is a nationality) or African-Americans (ethnicity).

      • marcellucci

        Or call them Negroes…..
        Which was how they were referred….
        Not unlike “Latinos” which has no bearing on anything nationality-wise or ethnicity-wise….
        It’s a made up word…

      • Richard Jefferies

        Negroid is a term that is used by some forensic and physical anthropologists to refer to individuals and populations that share certain morphological and skeletal traits that are generally associated with Black African ancestry.

        African-American (a continent hyphenated with a noun) is a rhetorical construct that makes no sense unless you are actually from Africa. A Caucasian could be an African-American if they were born in Africa and naturalized in The United States of America.

    This lady is a certifiable moron and Waiting to Exhale sucked.

    • Tommy

      Yes. Yes it did.

  • wwbdinct

  • wwbdinct

    Hey Terry – tell your “friend” that I do my own cooking, my own cleaning and my own landscaping. And I raised my own kids. I would be just fine thank you very much. So go on – tell “your friend” that she’s an assclown.

    • san rafael blue

      I’m laughing about “your friend”. Your sarcasm is dripping all over the linoleum floor.

  • Marcy Cook

    OH so Terry wants some mercy today? How about the lack of mercy you gave Paula Deen? At least Paula put on her big girl pants, was HONEST, and tried to make amends. You Terry? Well Eric Lewis summed you up quite well you are a Dumb ass coward.

  • Elaine

    What a difference a “D” makes.

    • Tommy

      Lol.

    • I Am Breitbart

      Yep! Seems the D’s are reaping what they have sown…shoe on the other foot not so comfortable!

  • BorderLine Guy

    I bet she’s quickly trying to make friends with the nearest Mexican-American.

    • GLS

      Like her gardener and housekeeper.

  • vphilly

    So she’s a leftist piece of shit. Let’s see if the backlash against her equals the backlash against Paula Deen.

  • http://www.freedomreconnection.com CO2 Producer

    How considerate of “they” to put a period at the end of her tweet before cutting it off.

  • Tommy

    That’s liberalism for you, play the race pimp when convenient and backpedal when you reveal to much.

    Liberals always have and always will be the party of racist. That won’t change.

  • gekkobear

    I grew up in a clean house and helped snap green beans in the summer from our garden.

    I guess my family is of Mexican descent… oddly our Tartan colors don’t show any indication of this.

  • gekkobear

    “FYI: A Mexican friend of mine is the one who made that statement about “what if” . . . take it easy.—”

    I’ve totally got a good friend whose a Mexican… so it wasn’t at all racist when I stereotyped Mexicans.

  • detroit19

    Quite the acrobatic feat to pivot, mid-air, to Paula Deen, who is a racist because of ‘heart attack on a plate’ food and because she admitted, in a sworn affidavit, to using the same word rappers use everyday, 20 to 30 years ago (perhaps our potus and his thug administration should show similar respect for the rule of law). Terry McMillan for USA 2016 Olympic gymnastic team.

  • descolada9

    I had to read some of her works for college, wasn’t impressed. Now I see she is a self-righteous hypocrite as well. Yes, Ms. McMillan, you belong in the same category right now as Paula Deen.

    • mickeyco

      Where did you go to school? She has never written anything worthy of college level study.

      • descolada9

        I took an African-American literature course many years ago and she was on the reading list. The class teacher was a militant black woman. And I went to UNL.

        • mickeyco

          Ah, now it makes sense. Thanks.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    Liberals spend years teaching people to be hypersensitive . . . then are surprised when they overreact. Hilarious.

    • LtColO

      BAM!! Ain’t that the truth!!

      • Lisa Dean

        I couldn’t agree more with both of you. And thank your @LtColO:disqus for your service.

    • LtColO

      BAM!! Ain’t that the truth!!

  • Squirrel!

    So this woman must employ some Mexican or other Latino people at her home? No one has anything to do with how clean my home is or how nice my yard looks except me & my husband as I am sure many of us take care of these things ourselves. I’m not sure who handles the food I buy at the store so I’ll say maybe to that. Anyway, sounds like racist stereotyping to me.

  • kateorjane

    Interesting how it’s never a bid deal when a lib says something racist.or insensitive but when a conservatives does it is earth shattering, I bet Paula Deen would like a “oops” card.

    • san rafael blue

      What adds to the sad shock of Paula’s ‘crucifixtion’ is that I do not think she’s known to be conservative. I;m pretty sure she parroted the same politically correct BS that other Obamaphiles did throughout 2012. This is another Martha Stewart -Loss of the Crown type moment for those inclined to envy the success of others.

      • Ronald Green

        Yep, she campaigned for Barry in the last election.

    Paula Deen – RACIST
    Terry McMillan – MISUNDERSTOOD, TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT, NOT A RACIST BECAUSE SHE NEVER ATE PAULA’S FOOD

    • unknown

      Don’t forget about this: Paula is white and Terry is black

      • James Rose

        Belief systems don’t reside in the skin. Beliefs reside in the brain and all brain matter is considered as ‘Gray’. Therefore, oh hell, enough said.

        • unknown

          I was just pointing out that Paula would be labeled a racist because she is white and Terry would not be cause she is not white (although that is not helping George Zimmerman)

          • James Rose

            My apologies. I misunderstood your comment. Your explanation is dead on. BTW, I think the trial is going great for George. Watching the Prosecution chief witness testify was like watching the ‘Low Talker’ episode of Seinfeld.

      I was wondering as well, maybe known commodities are just boring to destroy.

  • Neil Leininger

    So we have Dean and McMillan. Dean lost her job, and rightfully so, will McMillan, probably not.

    • Ronald Green

      Rightfully so? For what, apologizing for her 30 year old past indiscretions? Mmmm, if you say so.

      • Neil Leininger

        If it was that simple, yes. It’s not and you probably know that.

        • Ronald Green

          Well, let’s hope they don’t start hanging people for the skeletons in their closet. The last one left would need to hang himself. But you’re right about this twit not going to be canned for her racism. She’s blaaack and to can her for racism would be racist.

    • TocksNedlog

      Wait just a minute . . . McMillan has a job?

  • Lisa Dean

    Liberals really do eat their own. In spite of calling Paula Deen’s food a “heart attack on a plate” she calls her a racist and then makes a racist statement herself.

  • Guest

    Terry, are you a Southern Democrat? Are those your roots?

    I think the democrat party understands your demented psychology right nicely.

    You’re one of them.

    As for us Americans in flyover country, we wonder, do you and your kind ever look in the mirror? Do you see how hideous you look?

    We didn’t think so.

    Carry on girl. You’re doing wonders to clarify the soul of the democrat party.

  • Zefal

    Is there a Mexican who is suppose to be cleaning my house that I don’t know about?

      Did you fill out the application?

        That’s the problem! Thanks.

      Didn’t you hear? The government is importing one for all of us! Should be this week sometime, according to Harry Reid.

  • jetch

    like most people, I don’t have a maid or gardener and i’m sure there are plenty of non-Mexicans growing our vegetables. so not only is she a racist, but she’s also an elitist. hmmm, I guess that makes her a leftist…

  • Dane Gunderson

    Paula Deen just said Terry McMillan is a racist…

  • Herman LaClair

    i believe she still needs a partial “foot-from-mouth-ectomy”.

  • http://www.davidsmusings.com/ David

    If she had made a joke like “A day without Mexicans is like a day without rapes, murders, grand theft auto, robberies,” I probably would have laughed.

  • Garth Haycock

    “I know what I meant.”

    The key to good communication is letting others know what you meant. #Dumbass

  • Clete Torres

    Is it possible she was tweeting the tweet ironic?

    • Night Owl

      She wrote “Waiting to Exhale”, so I’m pretty sure she feels superior to Mexican gardeners, maids and cooks.

  • HARP2

    Terry McMillan………racist and she`s proud of it.

  • JR48

    I don’t care what she was trying to do. I don’t buy the whole “I can say this because I’m a minority, trying to be pithy’ shtick.

    Sorry hon, I hold you to the same standard as anyone. Even if you have a ‘mexican friend’. @@

  • Zach Smith

    My question is, “What is Mexico going to do without any Mexicans?”

    • Night Owl

      :-)

  • GMMI

    The only true thing McMillan said was that she was sorry. Well, that’s true since she is one sorry excuse for a human.

  • ClinkinKY

    Terry McMillan- “Hey that Mexican is my n____a! That’s okay, she can say it.

  • Semper Fi

    I’m going to move on to another story hoping it’s about someone I either care about or is at least relevant in some way.

  • TocksNedlog

    Dear Ms. McMillan,
    I sincerely apologize for taking your tweet out of context. Please forgive me!
    Signed, Tocks

    P.S. In-context, your tweet makes you look like an even bigger pile of racist crap.
    Toodles!
    XXOO

  • TocksNedlog

    What, she can’t get up off her fat ass and clean her own house?

  • Night Owl

    I’m starting to wonder if there is a hierarchy of acceptable racism, and if I’m right, this woman crossed the line. Whites are not allowed to say anything about anyone at any time. Black people are allowed to call whites whatever they want because there are no black people in power in this country, and therefor can not be racist. That’s not true about Mexicans, so in my opinion, black people can not say anything mean about Mexicans, especially when it comes to housework, gardening and cooking. Got it.

  • Ronin

    I guess “Selena gets her green card back” is in the works?

  • Mary123s

    now Ms. McMillan knows how Mrs. Deen’s week has been going…
    she thought she was going to get away with it because she was black…she found out otherwise

  • TonyMitch

    Mexican is not a race, so the comments were not racists. I am offended that she thinks only mexicans work in these areas. She also didn’t distinguish between Americans citizens of Mexican descent and illegal Mexicans. If it were illegals who cares if they were offended. Americans of Mexican descent then maybe. BTW who is Terry McMillan?

  • Dick Beninya

    McMillan is a hypocrite. Lol at the “that’s kinda racist” – Paula Dean, quote.

    I’m waiting for Terry to tweet “but some of my best friends are Mexican!”

  • Mister A

    The “part of my tweet got deleted!” excuse is a new one for me. I didn’t know Twitter arbitrarily deletes portions of tweets. #shefailedandflailed

  • malb

    Rich people hire illegal aliens to clean their houses for them and they assume everyone else does?
    They assume every brown person is illegal?
    When rich people like Terry Macmillan wander into populated areas, do they think everyone they see is a maid?
    Rich people like Terry Macmillan are typically like the mother from Arrested Development: “A sea of waiters, and no one to take a drink order.” ?

  • mallen717

    If blacks use the word “nigger” all the time, I guess there’s no problem with anyone using it. Keep on keeping on Paula!

  • kathyrn

    So the real opinion of Democrats for Latinos gets out….

  • Crunkomatic

    Sure, because before the first wave if Mexican immigration there was no food, house-cleaning, or landscaping in America.

  • xbox361

    crucifixion for which offenses?
    and was she talking legal immigrants, those whose descendants lived in areas later taken over by the US or just law breaking wetbacks?

  • tonguetiedfred

    Ummm, remember this? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0377744/

    The claim about how badly America would fare without Mexicans originally came from the left and was intended to highlight how important they are to the economy. I’m not sure why the usual suspects are getting upset by it.
